Bad Hombres, Nasty Women to Engage in Nationwide Art Projects Feb. 20

From the series 'Undiez,' by Louisiana artist Artemis Antippas. (Artemis Antippas)

This #100DaysArt post originates from 100 Days Action, which provides daily suggestions for becoming actively involved in artistic responses to the new administration.

Not a weekend goes by these days without political protest of some kind, and various umbrella organizations have sprung up to identify, compile, and amplify them. But how many advocate for public action involving poetry slams, dance recitals, three-act plays, operas, naked performances and quilting bees?

Bad and Nasty is "a looseknit coalition of artists, activists, media makers, theater folk, web geeks, designers, performers, writers, and concerned citizens around the world who are tired of waking up every morning since Election Day 2016 feeling angry/scared/sad and not having anything useful to do with those emotions." This Sunday, Feb. 20, they're hoping to inspire fearless creativity in the streets and big cities in the service of resistance.

The Bad & Nasty map covers the entire United States, with three events in the Bay Area: SignStorm San Jose invites protestors to leave their march signs in a large pile; Not My President San Mateo hosts a march; and Sloughing is an ongoing performance of menstruation in San Francisco. Comedy, theater, readings, music and more occur nationwide.
